I can't remember the exact name of the skill you need to get into Moria, which is something like Seeker of the Deep Places. A lowbie might be able to get that with help, but I think that the Dwarf at the portal that starts it might not grant it to you if you're lower than 45. I know you can get the requisite quests at 45.
